Days ago it was announced that European researchers had discovered a breakthrough cure for grey and thinning hair: A topical application of a sun-activated compound called PC-KUS (a modified pseudocatalase). However, the researchers may be a few hundred years late with their discovery since onion juice has been used as a remedy for thin and greying hair for ages.

What if we told you there was a seed so densely packed with healing compounds that cancer, bacteria, viruses, ulcers, diabetes, chronic inflammation, and many other common health conditions hardly stand a chance in its presence? Not to be confused with black sesame seed which looks strikingly similar, black cumin, also known as “black seed,” is the seed in question, and Continue reading →
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 63 percent of the deaths that occurred in 2008 were attributed to non-communicable chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, Type 2 diabetes and obesity — for which poor diets are contributing factors. Yet people that live in societies that eat healthy, plant-based diets rarely fall victim to these ailments. Continue reading →
I’ve treated many cases of cancer going against the standard slash, burn, and cut mantra of the medical establishment.
And I’ve seen some great success. But no injection therapy I’ve ever used took my breath away for its ease of use and effectiveness. That is until I saw the treatment I’m going to tell you about this month! Continue reading →
In my series on chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), I’ve dug through the medical research for the best natural options at your disposal. As usual, all are supported by evidence. One quick note: never treat phlebitis or leg ulcers by yourself without close supervision by your doctor. Here, in part two, I’m focusing on one remedy in particular; the best one available. Its name: horse chestnut. Continue reading →
Oregano, a common ingredient in Italian and Mexican cuisine, comes from the leaves of an herb native to the Mediterranean (not to be confused with Mexican oregano, native to the Americas), is one of the most concentrated antioxidant sources ever studied. According to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, its antioxidant activity is between three and 20 times higher than that of any other herb. Even well-known antioxidant-containing fruits fail to measure up: Oregano has four times the antioxidant activity of blueberries, 12 times that of oranges and 42 times that of apples.
While you can get some of these benefits from just cooking regularly with oregano, Continue reading →
Coconuts are one of the wonder foods on earth that amply provides for all human needs and have multiple health benefits… They can even save your life!
Few people (even fewer doctors) understand how important the coconut is to stabilizing blood sugar; lowering cholesterol; healing; hydration; and even replacing blood plasma in an emergency.
Referred to as kalpa vriksha (Sanskrit for “the tree that supplies all that is needed to live”) in ancient India, the coconut palm has been recognized as a top immune booster, antifungal, antibiotic, antiviral and antibacterial remedy for thousands of years all over the world.
Ginger root is more than a zesty culinary spice. It’s both a general tonic and specific medicinal herb. Ginger is actually the rhizome or horizontal “creeping root” of the Zingiber officinale plant, which belongs to the same family as turmeric and cardamom. Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine has used ginger for centuries. Now mainstream medicine uses various ginger extracts for major health problems.
Ginger has been used effectively for gastrointestinal problems as major as colitis and as minor as motion sickness. It stimulates good digestion. It helps alleviate congestion and minimizes mucous, even helping asthmatics. Various ginger extracts have been shown to improve cardiovascular health and circulation.
Ginger kills off 5-LO enzymes, without which prostate cancer cells die within hours. A component of ginger Continue reading →
The combination of honey and cinnamon has been used in both oriental and Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known to mankind and honey’s popularity has continued throughout history. The two ingredients with unique healing abilities have a long history as a home remedy. Cinnamon’s essential oils and honey’s enzyme that produces hydrogen peroxide qualify the two “anti-microbial” foods with the ability to help stop the growth of bacteria as well as fungi. Both are used not just as a beverage flavoring and medicine, but also as an embalming agent and are used as alternatives to traditional food preservatives due to their effective antimicrobial properties. People have claimed that the mixture Continue reading →
A fungus that overtakes the body of the worm it grows on, Cordyceps is a traditional Chinese health remedy that improves strength and endurance. At around $3,000 for a small box of the fungus, you’ll be doing your heart a favor too, said Chris Kilham, the Medicine Hunter.
“It imparts energy and makes you very strong,” Kilham said. “Athletes who use this have increased oxygen to their cells, and increased output from the heart.”
But for those who can’t stomach the energy-boosting fungus in its raw form, it also comes in capsule and tablet form and can be found at nutrition stores for a fraction of the price.
